8:00pm
essentially the insurance companies are picking your doctors for you. >> so much for choose your plan and your doctor. forget it. we got to run. thanks for telling your story and i wish you and your family the best. that's all the time we have this evening. start your day with fox and friends starting at 5:00. we'll see you back here tomorrow night. >> the"the o'reilly factor" is >> christmastime is here and once again there are powerful organizations trying to diminish the federal holiday. we will have a factor investigation. >> how long are the lines here? >> anywhere between four to six hours just to see a doctor. >> with all the controversy about obama care in america, how is canadian care working out? we send jesse watters up north to finds out. >> obama care is trying to emulate you guys. i think it's your fault. >> go ahead. everybody tries to blame canada,
8:01pm
right? ♪ >> another example of political correctness run amok, katy perry now being accused of being anti-japanese. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. the war on christmas centralizes. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. over the years we've taken on the role of protecting the federal holiday of christmas. some americans are offended by any reference to jesus christ. that's what the usa celebrates on december 25th, the birth of the baby jesus. president grand signed the holiday into law after congress
8:02pm
passed legislation in 1870 acknowledging the ju day yoe christian tradition. americans officially got the day off from work. everything was swell up until about ten years ago when creeping secularism and pressure groups like the aclu began attacking the christmas holiday. they demanded the word christmas be removed from advertising and public displays and many people caved into that. now we have the happy holidays syndrome. what's interesting this year is that hanukkah will be over on thursday so there is no more holidays between then and christmas day. it's just christmas if you want to invoke happy. bad news for the secular progressives. the absurdity of the situation was parodied today in the
8:03pm
cartoon strip by bruins tice ti. then there is macy's, a company that i generally like because it supports wounded warriors. this year they're touting santa claus who will help you with your, quote, holiday wishes. so what holiday is santa celebrating? winter soul tis, the birthdays of a reign deer? what. there are three groups trying to diminish christmas, the american civil liberties union and the american humanist association. the most agreg sieve is the freedom from religion foundation which routinely threatens to sue school districts if they dare utter the word christmas. the irony is that nobody is bothering the atheists. they are free to celebrate whatever they want.
8:04pm
they are free not to believe and snicker at anybody who does believe. that's not good enough for these people. they want to banish any mention of jesus in the public square. they're the 0 pressers so why are we allowing anti-christmas madness. 47 percent of americans believe there is a war on christmas. 40 do not and 13 percent are confused. once again i will keep on eye on the situation. helping me is the alliance defending freedom organization based in scottsdale, arizona. they have been successful in defending traditional rights in the courts. therefore i say to them, god bless you, each and every one, with apologies to dickens. let's go to arizona and bring in doug napper, an attorney who works for the alliance
8:05pm
organization. what cases are you working on this season? >> the majority of americans celebrate christmas so everybody should have the right to enjoy the season without the inter feerns of a few bullies. we have seen basis where schools have banned music based on information put out by these organizations that don't understand the constitutionality of christmas. there were two cases, one in wisconsin and new jersey which you talked about where they banned the christmas carols and last one was in south carolina where it was a school ban, just music. they said, well, even though the students picked these songs, joy to the world and oh, come faithful, they banned them from the schools. alliance defending freedom sent a letter, told the truth about christmas, that christmas is constitutional and they allowed these back in the schools. >> let me stop you there. this is rock hill, south carolina, a suburb of charlotte, north carolina, right on the
8:06pm
boarder. what prompted the school officials here in a small town to say, we're not going to allow christmas music. were they threatened? did somebody come and shake them? what precipitated that? >> what is happening to this school and others is that they're getting miss information from groups like the aclu and freedom from religious foundation and they are telling things about christmas that aren't true. >> give me an example. >> well, they're saying you can't have christmas carols in the school, the students can't sing religious music in the schools. every federal court that reviewed this issue said you can. you're doing a great job of getting the information to the public. we sent out 13,000 letters to school students to tell the truth about christmas. >> this isn't a new story. this has been going on for decades as i pointed out. you guys have won pretty much
8:07pm
every case that you brought into court, correct? >> sure. what we're seeing now is they're not even bringing these cases to court. they're sending out threatening letters with misinformation in them. >> with all of that known that you have won and the federal courts have upheld the christmas traditions, why do these school boards fold? why do they do that? why don't they say it's been adjudicated. they're going to do it and blank you, merry christmas. >> some of these small schools are afraid of litigation. and that's why the alliance will defend them for free at no cost to the school districts. they need to be informed. we hope they read the letters. they need to go to the school districts and tell them the truth. they can go to our website, all the fact sheets are on there. they can tell the truth to the school districts. once they're informed they usually back down like these last three. >> but i think it wasn't because of you and your fine
8:08pm
organizations or the constitution, they backed down because i threatened to come there myself. that was it. >> we appreciate that. we appreciate that very much. >> it's good that people know that your organization will defend them grat tus, pro bono if they are harassed. a footnote in rhode island, the governor has announced that the state tree will be called a christmas tree this year. rebate we debated the governor last year over the holiday tree and we are pleased the governor made the call to christmas this year. the next the obama care debate continues and we'll tell you what is likely to hurt you the most. and watters is going to canada to find out about their health care system.

8:12pm
will there be a doctor shortage in america? from the beginning of the obama care debate i've been telling you it's not the cost of the health insurance that will be the main problem. yes, the cost is going to go higher for working americans, no question, but it is access to doctors that will vex americans in the future. in the next five weeks millions of americans will be added to the medicaid rolls. next year the congressional budget office predicts that 9 million more people will be receiving medicaid. just 69 percent of american doctors accept medicaid now. that number may go lower as government payments drop. if millions are added to the medicaid rolls and two-thirds accept those patients, the lines are going to be all over the place. joining us from oklahoma city, dr. keith smith who has a surgery practice and dr. brooks.
8:13pm
dr. brooks, you don't take medicaid health insurance at all, correct? >> that's correct, bill. >> why? >> i don't think i can do a thorough job. i don't believe in running people through my practice. i don't believe in volume practice and the new laws really would necessitate my pushing people through, not doing a thorough job. >> why couldn't you do a thorough job? there you are in the office and the people come in and they have health insurance and medicaid. what would prevent you from doing the usual good job that you do? >> it's a time factor. in order to get a good history, it takes ten or 15 minutes. the fees are so low that i couldn't afford to keep my doors open so i had to make a choice, either keep my doors open and practice medicine quickly or get rid of the insurance and practice medicine the way i want to. >> people come to you, they pay the full boat, you send them a bill and they write you a check,
8:14pm
there is no middle man at all helping them out. that's essentially your practice, right? >> that's correct. >> dr. smith, you do take medicaid patients. do you fear that the flood of new patients in oklahoma which is inevitable is going to impact on your practice? >> actually we don't take medicaid patients for the same reasons dr. brooks just explain. i prefer to give care that patients need rather than that that a bureaucrat tells me to give them. >> i apologize for that mistake. i was told that you did take it. so you don't take medicare. do you take private insurance? >> we will file some private insurance as a courtesy to the patients for all but the most abusive carriers. we do not take medicaid and don't anticipate. we would rather treat those patients free of charge than take that money, not only from the federal government and the state government but also dictating the type of care these people receive. >> both of you guys are shutting
8:15pm
out the poorest americans, the medicaid people who are going to be supplemented by the federal government under obama care. you both say, look -- >> no. >> don't show up at my door because i'm not going to do this. >> no. >> tell me where i'm wrong. >> if someone calls me and they need to be seen, it doesn't matter if they can pay me or not. >> you'll do it pro bono? >> sure. >> i'm not saying you're bad guys. if somebody comes in and can't pay you'll treat them. that's noble. what i'm trying to get across, both of you guys don't take it so the doctors who do take it are going to be flooded with more and more patients because of doctors like you guys. am i wrong? >> you're right. >> more physicians will -- >> it's a function of time. >> more physicians will stop seeing them. >> you say, dr. brooks, that more physicians are going to stop seeing them. why? why would they stop?
8:16pm
>> i would say that they would stop because there are a subset of physicians who really don't care to practice and to be dictated to by a set of people -- >> that's your opinion. do you share that opinion, dr. smith? >> yeah. absolutely true. that's why i don't deal with medicare either. i h i'd rather tell the patient, come on in. let's get you taken care of and leave that silly card. >> if both of you guys are right and more doctors say, you know what, i'm not going to get involved with this, i got a decent practice on my own, then you're going to squeeze all of these 30 million people who are enrolled on obama care if they can ever get the computer working into fewer and fewer doctors. that's a recipe for chaos, is it not, dr. brooks? >> it is, indeed. plus, as you've said, there are fewer and fewer doctors that will be practicing.
8:17pm
we're going to have a substantial shortage of doctors by 2020, almost 100,000 and we're going to add 32 million people in totals to the health care rolls. >> dr. smith, last word, do you see chaos in the future? >> i see the emergence of the consumer market. these medicaid patients won't stand in line long and they'll find very affordable care from physicians like dr. brooks and me. >> we appreciate it very much. jesse watters goes to canada to see how the national health care is working out there and later brit hume and michelle obama professing undying love. how does that play politically, after these messages. hi honey, did you get e toaster cozy?

>> according to a gallup poll
8:21pm
taken in 2011, 57 percent of canadians are satisfied with their national health care program. it's financed through tax revenues that can reach as high as 50 percent of income. many canadians have come here for things like surgery because wait times are long. with all that in mind. jesse watters ventured out to talk with some canadians. >> socialized canadian health care, what exactly is that? >> i think our health care situation right now is pretty ridiculous. >> we pay a lot of tax but we get a lot for the tax that we pay. >> what's the highest tax bracket here in canada? >> probably 50 percent. >> 50? >> coming from a [ bleep ] homeless [ bleep ] person who gets no access to [ bleep ] health care i think it's a joke. >> you're not crazy about it,
8:22pm
are you? >> what is your experience inter acting with the health care system? >> excellent. >> obama is trying to emulate the socialist health care. >> we have a socialist health care? >> i'm on my way to being tammy. my name is tom. >> obama is trying to emulate you. i think it's a train wreck. >> everybody blames canada. >> in this department we have homeless people, bank presidents side by side. >> have you heard of obama care? >> obama care? >> yeah. >> is that a violent thing? >> sounds like a monster movie. >> are you satisfied with your health care here in canada? >> no. we don't enjoy waiting months for an appointment. it's not the most effective way. >> did you have to wait in any line? >> yeah, about 8 hours. >> anywhere between four to six
8:23pm
hours. >> if the canadian health care system is so good, why do 40,000 canadians go to the united states each year to get treatment? >> because they're im patient and they have money. >> you need a special appointment, a specialist takes months. when people are ill they don't have months. >> if i'm not hospital i take things in my arms and i run. >> you dine and ditch? >> yeah. >> i was blowing off a little steam. so what? >> you're a holistic healer? >> yes. >> how would you suggest i heal my ailments? >> yoga cures everything. >> when are you due? >> yesterday. >> this could happen at any moment. i'm not quipped to handle that. what size cup are you now? >> those are natural after a year and a half. >> those are real breasts. >> i like the way you're put together. >> do you think there is a doctor shortage here in canada? >> there are shortages in
8:24pm
certain specialty areas. >> you're not a socialist doctor, are you? >> i don't know if i would use that word. >> i was going good there for a while. >> did you ever watch bill o'reilly on fox news? >> no. i don't watch tv. >> how do you know what's going on? >> i don't. >> do you ever watch "the o'reilly factor"? >> i do. >> name the child jesse. it's a great name. >> are you straight or gay? >> i'm straight. >> that's all i wanted to know. >> real men wear pink. >> yay! >> watters, why do 57% according to the poll like their health care system? >> it's free for one thing. one guy -- >> when you say it's free, there are no co-pays, no deductibles, nothing, you have a card, they walk in, treat you and you walk out. >> a guy said he got free knee surgery, waited four months but it was free. a guy had aides for 20 years and
8:25pm
he's been getting medications and been kept alive. >> that's a big deal. the guy going from tom to tammy, he said part of it was being paid for? >> right. >> how much of it? >> he hasn't gone all the way if you know what i mean. he has breasts. >> he's on the way. are they picking up the whole tab? >> a large percentage, i think he said 75 or 80 percent. >> that's obviously an elective things. >> it's not. he is a woman trapped in a man's body and that's very psychologically damaging. >> we're not going to make fun of that. >> i'm not but he says it's dis heartening. >> transgender people have their reasons for what they do but it's not life threatening, it's this would make my life better so it's optional. >> the taxpayers are picking up a part of that tab, not the whole thing. >> if you have cancer or something, as you said, aids,
8:26pm
they pick up the whole thing? >> the problem with cancer, if you are diagnosed and you want the chemo right away you get in line for a few months. a lot of people don't think it's acceptable to wait for chemo. >> a lot of people come here. >> even with cancer you got to wait? >> you do. >> jesse watters, everybody. as the factor moves along this evening, brit hume and michelle obama talking about personal things. is that a smart thing to do politically? charges that singer katy perry is anti-japanese. you're not going to believe what's going on here. we'll analyze and hope you stay tuned for those reports. impact wool exports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and the use of medical technology in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 70% of our mutual funds beat their0-year lipper average t. rowe price. invest with confidence. with investment information, risks, fees and expenses

8:29pm
8:30pm
> >> tonight reaction to our reports on a possible doctor shortage in america and the health care system in canada. joining us from washington, juan williams. do you concur the shortage prediction? >> the whole system is changing. neither of them take medicare and medicaid patients at the moment. so they're not great examples. i think most doctors will tell you they don't think they're going to get a lot of money out of this system. >> let's assume -- and i disagree with you. these doctors are being upfront and they're saying, look, we want to do a practice a certain way and they have a right to do that. if that plays out that if doctors say not worth it, not making enough money, want to do quality care and get paid in a
8:31pm
certain way, not through the federal government, inevitably there will be fewer doctors with more medicaid people, millions more. you can see how this is shaping up here, can you not? >> yeah. for people with money, we can go to those guys. >> what about the obama care was supposed to make health care better for the poor, more accessible for the poor. now it's going to make it more -- how could it if there are fewer doctors, juan? >> you have health care clinics, centers expanding with more doctors, assistants. >> all right. mary katherine, you say? >> we have had a broken website and the next step is going to be dock sho doc shock, finding out that you are not able to see a doctor quickly or not able to get the
8:32pm
doctor that you had before. with medicaid like you said, bill, you're adding 10 million new focuses to a system that wasn't working well to begin with where you were having to wait for doctors, certainly specialists over long periods of time before you could get in. having a government program, passing a law does not necessarily mean you're getting people good care which is something critics of obama care have been saying and it's going to get worse. >> do you feel sorry for juan as i do because juan and his fellow political travelers, they want health care, good health care for the poor, and so do i, i do. but my theory, mary katherine, has always been that the way to get to that is not to destroy the entire medical system for everybody except those with big bucks as juan acknowledged. that's not the way to get there. i feel sorry because juan is
8:33pm
torn between the idealogical vision of free health care and good health care for the poor and a system that's falling apart. my question to you, mary katherine, is you feel sorry that juan is in this ethical dilemma. >> i have compassion for juan as a friend but i feel more sorry for people who are thrown into a program where they expect care and they don't get it because you're having a doctor shortage. doctors are not public utilities. they're people. >> juan, both mary katherine and i sympathize for you and feel bad for you because you're trapped in this vortex. >> am i trapped like that woman who wants to be a guy in canada? >> i hope not. >> i hope not, too. i appreciate the holiday compassion because everybody in the country deserves health
8:34pm
care. the key point is the uninsured people have no health care so the idea that they would get into the health care system and get treatment is a holiday bonus for them. >> that's true but for the rest of us we're all going to be paying more and waiting more unless we have big bucks. >> i ron clee you tried to be compassionate and you end up giving lower income folks care that is essentially junk insurance. >> all the physicians assistants and nurses i know are very good, they're better than some of the doctors. thank you very much, both of you. when we come back, brit hume on michelle and barack obama talking about love. and then is katy perry accused of being anti-japanese. one. it's not the "fumbling around with rotating categories" card. it's not the etting blindsided by limits" card. it's the no-game-playing, no-earning-limit-having,

thanks for stay with us. >> i'm bill o'reilly. in the hume zone segment tonight an interesting exposition last friday on abc. the president and first lady sat for an interview with barbara walters. >> i know that by now you both have fairly thick skin, but when you hear your husband being booed, the president at a recent basketball game, how do you
8:39pm
feel? >> i am fortunate to be living with a man who has a long view of this job, who understands that in the case of health care, that this is all about the folks who don't have insurance, the folks that he sees every single day. >> this is a man you love and some people -- >> i do. i love you. >> she does. >> i mean, it's plain and simple as that, barbara. i love this man. he's working hard. he's doing the best he can and he's doing a phenomenal job and i got his back. >> joining us is brit hume. do you think that was a smart political move? is there more to it than genuine affection which i think is there. is there more to it than that? >> presidents tend to benefit from the association with the first lady, whoever that is. a lot of first ladies, many, are
8:40pm
more popular than their husbands because they tend to be noncontroversial. barb bra bush was an example of that. the first ladies don't have a job in the same way their husband does and don't have to worry about the approval rating so it benefits the president but i don't think it goes very far. >> what do you mean by that? >> i just don't think -- in other words, if you are in a political jam that this president is in over his major initiative being in terrible, terrible trouble, and likely to continue, this little tab low of family unit is not going to hurt but it probably won't help very much. >> is it targeted at women viewers? >> yes. barbara walters asks the personal questions that tend to be of more interest to women viewers. perhaps it was, but i just think at a political event it's kind of a minor occasion. >> let's run down the modern
8:41pm
presidents that you have covered. we are almost begin with gerald and betty ford. they had a relationship -- >> glad you didn't say george and martha washington. >> we know you picked it up with martin van buren i think. but they weren't overtly affectionate together. >> but she was well liked. >> she was well liked and then she got in trouble. >> she got in trouble and then she made something out of that and we had the betty ford clinic. she emerged as a hero. >> jimmy and rose lynn carter, they were close. >> they were and they had a good marriage and people like to see that, i think. >> but you didn't see a lot of them together or they didn't do the kind of thing that we saw on barbara walters. >> i don't remember them doing that. >> nancy and ronald reagan -- i know you're getting old. take it from me. they weren't that overt.
8:42pm
but then nancy and ronald reagan came on the scene and they why joined at the hip. >> they were. >> ronald reagan made no bones about it that nancy was his partner and they were in it together and that was all over the place and that benefitted, i think, the president. >> she became controversial late. you remember the business about the astrology jer. >> no doubt about it. then we had bush the elder and barbara bush. >> she was wildly popular. >> there was more of a back and forth there. they were kind of joshing each othe other. then of course bill and hillary clinton. >> she was controversial because she had her own agenda and on health care in particular and she set out to fulfill that. in one sense she was a power behind the throne and the way
8:43pm
you didn't get with nancy or barbara bush. >> a lot of people thought nancy was driving the policy. >> she was liberal. >> then we get to w. and laura bush and that was a respectful and close relationship and he benefitted from her. >> no doubt. >> i don't think i've ever seen an interview as overtly romantic as the obamas. >> when she said i do love you, you don't hear that much of that. >> you don't hear that much of that in this country. hume, thanks. we didn't rattle you too much. >> thank you, bill. >> you and james buchanan, you guys were great together. wish we had old clips of that. tv wasn't invented then but if you could have seen hume and buchanan, they were correct. madness this time starring katy perry. it's next. inute...

it's hard to describe, because you have a numbness, but yet you have the pain like thousands of needles sticking in your foot. it was progressively getting worse, and at that point i knew i had to do something. once i started taking the lyrica the pain started subsiding. [ male announcer ] it's known that diabetes damages nerves. lyrica is fda approved to treat diabetic nerve pain.
8:46pm
lyrica is not for everyone. it may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, changes in eyesight including blurry vision, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or skin sores from diabetes. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. ask your doctor about lyrica today. it's specific treatment for diabetic nerve pain. but add brand new belongings from nationwide insurance and we won't just give you the partial value of items that are stolen or destroyed... ...we'll replace them with brand-new versions. so you won't feel robbed. again.
8:47pm
just another way we put members first. because we don't have shareholders. join the nation. ♪ nationwide is on your side ♪ back of the more crazy political correctness. last week singer katy perry kicked off the american music awards. ♪ ♪ >> well, after that performance, the "huffington post" printed this critique, quote, there is room for argument as to whether the performance was racist, but it was definitely and with no room for argument, cultural,
8:48pm
appropriation using aspects from another culture as a means of exploitation. cultural appropriation. joining us the purr vaer of goldberg.com. do you know what that is about? >> i do. in my hours of research i came up with the definition of cultural appropriation. it refers to picking and choosing elements of a culture by a member of another culture without permission. now, conservatives have their own craziness, but only a liberal could come up with this nonsense. if robert deniro wants to play the ayatollah in a movie, who does he go to get permission to
8:49pm
do that? all the muslims in the whole world. >> the iranian parliament, i don't know. >> you got to get permission if you are going to proep rate someone else's culture. >> first time i've heard of this. katy perry, i mean, the song was in context, nice costumes. it's almost like an homage. it makes you want to go there. >> this is not about katy perry. this is about liberals who on halloween decide kids can't wear cowboy outfits or indian outfits. with katy perry, she's apparently proep rating japanese culture. she's playing a gash sha. that's a woman who is
8:50pm
subservient to men. a gash sha tries to please men and make them happy. in liberal circles playing such a woman is a felony. if katy perry were wearing that exact same outfit on that same stage but were kicking men in the head, she would be a feminist icon. >> let me stop you. so if katy perry were. >> it isn't just the japanese culture. she's playing a subservient woman. >> i got it. >> liberals can't tolerate that. they are the cultural police, bill. they have decided what is acceptable for all of us and what is unacceptable for all of us. >> why do they have to hide behind the racist angle that
